Agni-V

India is set to test a new nuclear-capable missile with a 3,100-mile (5000-km) range within a year.

The missile would effectively bring most of China within India's range, as well as more potential targets to the west and east than its existing weaponry.

"Agni-V is out of the drawing board. We are aiming for a flight trial within a year," V.K. Saraswat, India's chief military scientist told reporters.

India successfully tested the Agni-III missile, which has a 3000-km range, at the weekend and is ready to bring it into the military.
